Global Coated Fabrics Market on a Modest Growth Trajectory, to Surpass ~US$ 22 Bn by 2020-end – Future Market Insights

Coated fabrics have greater capacity to withstand hostile environments and fluctuating weather patterns. The most prominent coating substances used across industries are rubber, resins and polymers provide longevity to the material, making them impervious to damage from oil, dust, water or other catalysts.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / The global coated fabrics market is slated to reach a valuation of US$ 21.6 Bn by 2020-end, expanding at a moderate CAGR. Most of the demand for coated fabrics is being generated by the automobile industry as they are highly rot-proof, water resistant, UV repellant and mildew resistant. Therefore, they are highly used across automobiles, railways, aircrafts and marine applications. Additionally, coated fabrics have found increased usage in the production of industrial uniforms, masks and gloves. As industrial workers operate in hostile and hazardous environments, they require adequate protective gear for which coated fabrics are an ideal choice.

The textile industry has also found immense application of coated fabrics in recent years. The industry widely uses fabrics to imbue water impermeability and resistance to other external contaminants. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has drastically inhibited market growth, attributed to sluggishness across various end-use industries. The imposition of nationwide lockdowns have ushered in a stalemate in production cycles, causing output to become restricted. However, as restrictions are easing in certain countries, the market is set to leverage as end-use industries are gradually reverting to normal operations.

“The coated fabrics industry has been mushrooming rapidly, owing to significant technological advancements in coating processes. As the years progress, market players are increasingly discovering ways to capitalize on these advancements in order to expand their customer base,” concludes a leading FMI analyst.

Anticipated Impact of the Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus outbreak has significantly dented the coated fabrics market. This is primarily due to production crunches across prominent end-use industries such as automobiles and textile. According to estimates, plant shutdowns in the automobile sector have generated a loss of nearly 3 million vehicle units in the first half of the year, with further losses predicted over the third and fourth quarters in the United States alone. The rising number of coronavirus cases has compelled manufacturing units to either operate at reduced capacity or totally cease production lines. Also, the closure of textile industries has impacted the entire value chain, ranging from fabric supply to brand to the zipper and label industry. As a consequence, the demand for coated fabrics has recorded a steep dive. Fortunately, several countries have eased lockdown restrictions, with a view to realign economic growth. As a result, the abovementioned end-use industries have experienced an uptick in their production cycles. This resurgence is anticipated to provide leverage to the coated fabrics market in the months to come.
